U13 County Champions

Rathgormack won the U13 Co. Final beating Clashmore by 2-10 to 1-05. This was another fine performance from the boys. They went ahead early in the game with some excellent combination play and an exhibition of finishing, off the left and right foot, from Rónan Elliffe at centre half forward and Tom Walsh in midfield. James Power was heroic all over the pitch, dispossessing the attacking Clashmore players on several occasions and setting up attacks for himself and his fellow players. David Guiry gave an immense display in the full back line, lifting his team-mates with his bursts out of defence. Peter Walsh, in goal was soundness personified. Eoin Power was rock solid at centre half back and was well supported in defence by Cian White and Dylan McCarthy. Barry Power, at right half back, was a giant for the hour. In attack Seán Hennebry, Shane Curry and Laurence Hearne continued the great progress which they have made this year with excellent working off the ball and fine team-play. Once again, Jack Hickey showed why he will be a top player in the future, with his pace and his ability to take on his opponent. Reece O’ Mahoney, Anthony Power and Gerard Hahessy made good contributions when introduced. Well done to the boys. Let’s keep improving and having fun.


Cúl Camps 2014

County hurler Jake Dillon has been announced as the 2014 Ambassador. In a new departure Jake will be the county player visiting every camp in 2014. He will spend approx 2 hours at every camp with a mix of coaching, autographs, chatting to children etc at each of the camps. For the 11-13 year olds at the camps we are going to have some new additions to the camp programme. For this age group the focus some of the week on skill development, games and some specialist skills. These coaches will do some work with the 11-13 age groups in the camps. Hopefully this will attract an increase in the 11-13 year olds at the camps. All bags this year are county coloured so we are getting white/blue bags in Waterford. To ensure children in the club get the kits/bag before end of school year they should be booked in no later than Fri 13th June.

U9 & 10 Football

Our U9 & U10 footballers will be taking part in matches every Wednesday night for the months of June & July on alternate weeks. These matches will be played at various venues around the mid county & we kick off this Wednesday 4th June when we visit Fews to play John Mitchels in U9. This is a great initative by the Coaching & Games Officers & is to be commended & it follows on from a similar programme of games for hurling during April & May.
